From french ampère, the unit of measurement named for andré-marie ampère, french physicist and mathematician who studied the nature of electricity and magnetism.


  1. The amperage was too high and caused the circuit to overheat.
  2. The amperage was too low and the device wouldn't turn on.
  3. He measured the amperage of the current to ensure it was within safe limits.
  4. The amperage was the key factor in determining the power consumption of the device.
  5. He had to increase the amperage in order to get the desired result.
